Kelsey Zwick and her 11-month-old daughter Lucy were flying from Orlando to Philly, where the preemie Twin receives treatment for a chronic lung disease, when an American Airlines flight attendant told the mother that a man at the front of the plane had asked to switch seats with them.
"To the man in 2D. Today you were traveling from Orlando to Philly. I did not know you, but I imagine you saw us somewhere. "I was pushing a stroller, had a diaper bag on my arm and also lugging an oxygen machine for my daughter," Zwick wrote in her now-viral Facebook post after their flight last Thursday. She included a photo of the smiling baby on her lap in first class, with a bow on her head and oxygen tubes in her nose. "We pre-boarded the plane, got cozy in our window seat and made jokes to those around us about having to sit by my yelling-but-happy baby."
Zwick took him up on his offer. "Not able to hold back tears, I cried my way up the aisle while my daughter Lucy laughed! She felt it in her bones too … real, pure, goodness," she wrote.
The mom lamented that she didn
"Sooo … thank you. Not just for the seat itself but for noticing. For seeing us and realizing that maybe things are not always easy. You wanted to show a random act of kindness to US. It reminded me how much good there is in this world. I can not wait to tell Lucy someday. In the meantime … we will pay it forward. seat 2D, we really feel inspired by your generosity. "
As a result of her post, she later connected with the passenger, Zwick told Yahoo:" He was thanking me for a birthday to remember. It was the best day. "
